New deal for Ebanks-Blake

Published Add your comment

Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is set to pen a new four-year deal at Molineux, the club have confirmed.

The 23-year-old fired in 25 goals last season as Wolves won the Championship, finishing as the division's top goalscorer for the second season running. And the club were delighted to offer the former Manchester United reserve a new contract which ties him to the club until 2013.

"This is a reward to Sylvan for his outstanding goalscoring for the last two years," chief executive Jez Moxey told the club's official website.

"To win the Golden Boot two years running is a superb achievement and we want him to feel absolutely magnificent going into the Premier League, where hopefully he can do exceptionally well.

"We realise it's a big step-up but he's really happy about being here and he sees his long-term future here too and we feel we have to act accordingly."

Wolves bought Ebanks-Blake for £1.5 million in January 2008 and the forward immediately repaid their faith in him, scoring seven goals in his first eight games.

He has notched 37 goals for Wolves and Moxey hopes his scoring streak continues in the Barclays Premier League.

"He has been magnificent for us and he epitomises the determination and focus of the players here," added Moxey. "He has also given great value for money and he's been literally magnificent in every aspect.

"As soon as we said we were interested in him, he wanted to come and he loves it here - he loves the fans, he loves scoring goals, he loves playing at Molineux and his team-mates and the manager think he's fantastic."
